Covid-19 Updates

Update May 6, 2022

Thank you for all of your concern and support the past few weeks, when covid-19,which impacted RPVC for the first time. 

We are now back to having clients in exam rooms!  Please continue to wear a mask during the in-person exams with veterinary staff.  

The following policy will continue to be in force:

  1. ILLNESS: If you are experiencing any symptoms of cough, cold, or flu, please do not enter the clinic at any time.  Call us to discuss other options for your pet health and pet supplies.  We can still see your pet, especially if it is an emergency. 

  2. MASKS: A face covering must be worn over the nose and mouth at all times when physical distancing is not possible in exam rooms.  We will happily provide a mask if you need!   If you are not comfortable wearing a mask, we are happy to do your exam via a "curbside" appointment and consult with you on the phone.  (anybody can request a curbside appointment at any time)

  3. REDUCE EXPOSURE: We no longer have a limit on the number of clients in exams.  We request that your pets only bring humans directly involved in his/her care to appointments.  This reduces exposure between clients and staff in small spaces.  

As always, we will clean used surfaces between appointments.  Our staff is fully vaccinated against covid-19.  We recommend you use the hand sanitizer available at the front counter before and after your visit.

Thank you for your compliance!  River Path Veterinary Clinic.  May 6, 2022

Update April 26 - May 2, 2022

A positive case of "Covid-19" at River Path Veterinary Clinic means we must adapt and be flexible in the coming days.  

Thank you to all the clients who have called the clinic and expressed their best wishes for recovery.  This community is truly the best to be a part of! 

As Veterinary Medicine is an essential service, RPVC will continue to be operational, while following all government health advice and performing exceptional cleaning procedures.  

From today (April 26, 2022) until at least Monday, May 2nd, all appointments will be "curbside" to limit interaction with the public.  We intend to only keep this policy as long as there is a risk of contagious infection among the staff. 

If your pet needs veterinary care this week, please do not hesitate to call and book, as we are fully operational and will still provide excellent care.  We can refill medications and provide sales of food and supplies as usual.  

If you have any questions, please phone us during regular hours and our excellent RVT's are available to answer.  

Thank you for your support!

Update March 2, 2022

The continuing viral pandemic affects everybody differently, and in the veterinary world an unprecedented staffing crisis makes it crucial that we keep our employees healthy and avoid illness. 
In order to continue to provide consistent service to our patients, we will continue to require masks for all in-person exams until further notice.  

If everyone respectfully follows these guidelines, it would make us extremely thankful and hopefully we can continue to keep our doors open to you!  Your pets are our priority! 

We have been utilizing mask policies since we opened but want to make them clear to our clients. These policies may change without notice as we monitor the pandemic.  (Updated March 2, 2022)

  1. ILLNESS: If you are experiencing any symptoms of cough, cold, or flu, please do not enter the clinic at any time.  Call us to discuss other options for your pet health and pet supplies.  We can still see your pet, especially if it is an emergency. 

  2. MASKS: A face covering must be worn over the nose and mouth at all times while in the clinic.  We will happily provide a mask if you need!   If you are not comfortable wearing a mask, we are happy to do your exam via a "curbside" appointment and consult with you on the phone.  (anybody can request a curbside appointment at any time)

  3. REDUCE EXPOSURE: We no longer have a limit on the number of clients in exams.  We request that your pets only bring humans directly involved in his/her care to appointments.  This reduces exposure between clients and staff in small spaces.  

  4. OPEN DOOR: When you arrive, we recommend checking that the waiting room is not crowded before entering. If you would like to phone to check in, or would prefer curbside, please call! 

As always, we will clean used surfaces between appointments.  Our staff is fully vaccinated against covid-19.  We recommend you use the hand sanitizer available at the front counter before and after your visit.
